Veteran entertainer, Pete Edochie has questioned why power has not gotten back to the Igbos.

As indicated by him, Igbos can’t keep being underestimated on the grounds that with them in power, stealing from will be a relic of times gone by in light of the fact that they are diligent employees.

Upholding for his kin, he mourned that there has just been one head of territory of Igbo extraction in the more than 60 years of Nigeria’s autonomy.

“Igbo individuals are Nigerians. In 1956 when Queen Elizabeth came, it was the vehicle of an Igbo man Odumegwu Ojukwu that was utilized to convey her, since he was one of the most extravagant person of color at that point,” the entertainer said.

“He never requested to be paid. Fruitful Nigerians in those early times were individuals of Igbo extraction: Power Mike in boxing, Chinua Achebe in writing. Indeed, even Ben Enwonwu, the Nigerian who painted the sovereign at that point, is Igbo.

“Me as a fruitful entertainer am an Igbo man. Igbo, Hausa, and Yoruba are the significant ethnic gatherings in Nigeria. Just a single time throughout the entire existence of Nigeria has it arisen that an Igbo individual turned into the head of state in Nigeria.

“That was Aguiyi Ironsi during the tactical government and his headship was brief. From that point forward, the north and the Yoruba have been dividing power among themselves, aside from Goodluck Jonathan who isn’t even Igbo.”

“Why has power not got back to the Igbo public? Is there a plot by the political elites to sideline the southeast? I’ve lived in the north. I communicate in Hausa. Be that as it may, it’s extremely past due for Nigeria to have a head of Igbo extraction,” he added.

“You can’t legitimize underestimating the Igbo public. Igbo can convey key authority that will change Nigeria. That is the Igbo way. We’re strong naturally. The plundering of Nigeria’s assets will end with Igbo administration.

“The issue in Nigeria is eagerness. Administration is overwhelmed by northerners however, 60 years after freedom, we’ve not finished the power issue, when coal-based Oji River provided capacity to the entire east before the common conflict.

“It’s actual Igbos can’t crease our arms and trust that power will be conveyed. However, we can’t battle for everything without anyone else.”
